Now I've been going to the fair ever since before I can remember. I have some vague memories of a stroller and the Giant Slide. In all the years that I've been going though I've never been to a BBQ Competition. My friend's fiance entered a very tasty tri-tip sandwich with a spicy spread on a glazed donut, bacon chips, and a corn salad (he took home a Second Place Ribbon).
I'm not a BBQ-er myself. I enjoy the taste, but I'm just more of an indoor cook. So of his menu I decided that I needed to come home and make some corn salad of my own. I'm not one to make up a recipe from scratch either...but I can tweak a recipe like nobodies business, which is what I did with this recipe from Six Sisters' Stuff. My changes included adding spinach to the corn at the end of heating (because I have WAY too much spinach on hand right now). Instead of mayonnaise I used some Vegenaise and plain Greek yogurt. I omit the jalapeno but doubled up on the cilantro. I also went with fat free Feta crumbles. Lastly, I used onion and garlic powder--because I'm lazy like that. It came out fantastic! I would never have even looked for a recipe like this if it weren't for the LA County Fair.
Any county fair memories you'd like to share? What's your favorite part?
